Notes: # Mickey Hart on Djimbe
This is from the legendary 1984 Spring Tour run the first time they sold tour booklets, one ticket to every show that tour- we bought several. The second set Scarlet >Fire is considered one of the top ten ever performed. Listen to Mickey on "talking drum" during Fire; the space/drums/space following Estimated is far far out there.
1] The Sennheiser binaurals were pressure gradient "omni" type capsules designed to be worn on a human head or the supplied dummy head. This is one of the best representations of how they sounded in this type of live environment. this will sound BEST through headphones; through a stereo you may choose to increase bass slightly.
2] First set tape was stopped between every song break; we must have been trying to conserve batteries. Second set same method until after drums.
+ Tape flip ~41.05
3] First minute has recording level variations; the Sound crew doesn't get it set for levels until start of second song.

Subject: the dummy head
Once inside, we had it set up DFC on the floor and were trying to conceal it for a while with a towel, however Dan Healy noticed it and actually came down from his riser and spoke with us about it. He even asked for a copy of the tape which we provided him the next night.
Final story; a dude with a camera was taking a picture of the head and I got nervous because in those days i didn't like to be photographed. So I ran him down and harassed him for taking a picture without asking. His response, "I'm on vacation and thought it was cool", I knew I was being a jerk and to this day hope I didn't scare him off the GD scene with my stupidness!
I give our own recording 3 stars for quality as a binuaral recording is not going to be sonically better than some of the other microphones used on this tour.
Subject: umm umm good
Were the mics worn on the dummy head or on a human head? If you used the dummy, how high was it elevated?
